Maid Corresponding with Child Rapist in US - HELP!

Postby SSBob » Sat, 31 Oct 2009 12:28 pm

Hi
I am really undecided what to do.
I have employed a maid to help with my day to day things and look after my puppy whilst I am travelling. Some post has arrived at my apartment for the Maid with a address - and a large stamp saying FROM A STATE CORRECTION FACILITY on it and I made a note of the name, and his prisoner number etc which was all on the outside of the envelope- as I was very surprised. I checked it out on the internet and and this person has pleaded guilty to countless child crimes - which makes me feel very sick. After thinking this over alot I decided to do something that I am ashamed of - as I like to treat people the way I am treated myself - and I read the letter once she had opened it. He was asking her to send pictures of her children and help him adopt some children in asia and they will get married etc. Even requesting that she get a doctor to check the boys genitalia etc to ensure it was all functioning. I feel sick to the stomach and do not know what to do - I really need some advice.
Should I confront her and let her know what I know ie. that I have been snooping? or should i just ignore it?
Ps. he says in the letter that he is getting out of prison in 1-2 months and he wants to meet her in singapore? Terrified if he turns up at my home. :???:

I find this post very unlikely to be true and my suggestion is that it is traced back by the moderators and police, on the basis of knowledge of which prisons openly stamp envelopes. This post could also be from a potential offender and should be looked into!

That's interesting.

A letter just like this adressed to a maid who previously worked for my family just came in the mail last week.

We didn't open it and simply assumed she actually knew someone serving time in the US (since she did after have to leave after getting pregnant off her Nigerian boyfriend. Least that's what she said).

Now it would appear that these letters are fake, although I cannot imagine why anyone would send these. Maybe I should tear it open to see if the contents are the same.

Found it. Bob, is it handwritten on your envelope cover:

A**M B*********P, #8****6
Taylor Correctional Institution
8515 Hampton Spings Rd
Perry,
FLA 32348

Firstly - I can assure you that this post in NOT from an offender?! .....and is TRUE. I find your email rather offensive - as I was requesting help and an opinion. That god not everyone on this site has the same twisted view on life ..... but if you wantto get the police involved please do... as I have nothing to hide. Happy to provide my details.

The letter that was sent to my house was actually from MI in the US - and yes, it was from a prolific offender. This has been confirmed from our own investigations, as it was a widely publicised case, as it turns out this individual got 30-65 years for the 2nd offence and 4-20 for the first, after, with her help we investigated further.

I have spoken to my maid in detail about this - apparently she had advertised on the Asian Ladies magazine and he responded, and they exchanged letters from there. She was mortified when she found out, as she is a divorced parent of 3 and supports all 3 children through university. I have suggest that she does not respond to any further post from people in prison, as they are not her best options....

What makes me angry is people take advantge of people like this.

If it is really true then you should contact the US embassy, I'm sure they would be interested in his attempts at adopting asian children.

You should also report the matter to the local police and ICA so they have a record in their database and can monitor whether he tries to enter Singapore.

KSL, this poster is Singapore based and I could tell you even who he works for, all based upon the IP. Apology is in order.

SSBob, I would contact the US embassy and I would contact the prison. This could be one of a number of things, from a scam to a scam being perpetrated by an offender who has nothing to lose. You might also consider contacting the FBI.

I would expect outgoing letters from prisons are screened especially if the privacy is already not there with all particulars written on the envelope....

....Yes. The letter that came to my house had the

Prisoner name
Prisoner number
The address of the Correction Facility
etc
[Mine was in Michigan]

in exactly the same order as you described. This letter was defo. not fake. As confirmed by my maid.

It is very worrying that these ladies correspond with these people.

Are you sure she did not run off with the bloke?

I am pretty sure that my maid will not be leaving with him, as he is banged up for 30 - 65 years ..... IMO he deserved longer for his heinous crimes.

You might ask your maid how it is that she has come by this correspondence.

As you are a victim of sorts of a man who really has a twisted view on life, I would have thought you would understand/appreciate the caution on the part of ksl.

BooneC - Easy Tiger ... jumping to the defence of KSL? whoa! ... I will reserve my judgement on who really wrote that email. Perhaps I should suggest the mod check it out... but then I am not on here as a bounty hunter.

I appreciate genuine concern and advice rather than someone suggesting that I am in fact the person I am concerned about.

Any helpful suggestions were welcome - KSL's was not helpful.

I do apologise, however I am not a moderator and do not have the means to check your IP.

I would have used some commonsense, and gone straight to the police with it! Rather than post it on a public forum, where predators no doubt lurk. It is a police matter don't you think rather than a what should i do now, post it on a forum and ask for help :???:

I had already thought that if you are innocent you have nothing to worry about! Though it is very important to react fast in these serious matters.

Okay there have been two letters now that have turned up. How sure are you they even came from the USA? They could have been dropped in your letter box at anytime, for what reason? It's a police matter full stop!

KSL - thank you foryour apology. of sorts.

I do not believe it is police matter. As I have done nothing wrong and neither has my maid,and if I felt that anyone was in danger then I would have instantly contacted the police.

If I was not clear in my orginal post -I apologise. I was asking for views on how I should deal with it with regards to my maid, and how I shoud approach her to make it clear to her that not all 'white people' are good, as she believes, and that anywhere is better that asia.
She is only trying to better her life for her childrens sake. unfortauntely she was clutching at straws on this occasion, and as her english is not great and she believed what he said [obviously he did not tell her the truth about his rap sheet - he told her he was bankrupt and hence the reason he was in prison for 5months] and she did not have the suspicious mind that I have, nor the facilities to check it out.

Sadly in life a few people wreck it for the majority who are honest.

KSL - I would have thought that living in the UK would have taught you to deal with things with help and support rather than running to the the police - cos they simply would not be interested, esp. since it is not a police matter [but agree with you that it MAY have turned into one if it had progressed further]

I might add that there is no-way that chap will be stepping into any country with a rap list like he has in the 30-66 years when he is realeased.

That I know, having had very close relations with the police from a business [please note, before you go off on one accusing me of being a predator again - NOT PERSONAL] perspective in the past.

Sadly my maid has learnt a horrible fact of life.

Unfortunately where i come from in Lancaster & Morecambe, it is a dumping ground for perverts and sex offenders after they are released from prison, from the whole of Lancashire.

This was due to the fact a local councillor at the time and his wife who represented the Lancashire police force conspired to get more funding from government. I know kids by name that have been sexually assaulted when they were 6 and 7 years old.

Back then the families used to get the maxium 10k criminal injury pay out, which was locked in the kids account until 18. Though these kids have never recovered from what happened some end up junkies or prostituting themselves, on the estate, some have taken their own life. Where i lived more than 20 children had been assaulted by a ring of them, men and women were also involved back in the 80's.

Police in Lancaster used to ignore the calls, until locals started handing out their own punishment. It's a very touchy subject with me having seen what these perverted bastards get away with, and are released after 3 years to do it again. Personally castration would be my form of cure for this problem!

Only when you have been affected directly will you ever understand! Morecambe used to be their little hub, assaulting kids in public toilets and befriending families, that have been neighbours, and assaulting their children, it's more wide spread than you realise.
might add that there is no-way that chap will be stepping into any country with a rap list like he has in the 30-66 years when he is realeased.
That chap is a member of a much larger ring of people, with their own perversions, they network like parasites around the world, and leads he gets may well be acted upon by others in the vicinity, where children are involved, just waiting for the right moment, maybe outside a school. The guy inside would be rewarded through the network, its their sport. You are talking about predators and they stick together like wolves.
Its not long ago since one was repatriated to the USA from Asia, he was caught working as a teacher either here in Singapore or Thailand.

I'm telling you, if you have had a mail like that, you should go straight to the police and let them deal with it.

That I know, having had very close relations with the police from a business [please note, before you go off on one accusing me of being a predator again - NOT PERSONAL] perspective in the past.
Personally i don't give a damn if you are the chief of police. You posted it on a public forum, asking for help, and i expect the public will react by helping you.
